Jimbo: "Everybody likes big safeties, but..."

Jimbo Fisher met with the media after spring practice this afternoon to give an update on how the team is looking.

Coach Fisher fielded a ton of questions on personnel and how things are looking early on, and offered some insight on the way safeties are more like corners in today's defense because of how offenses spread you out.

"Everybody likes big safeties, but safeties anymore are corners." Fisher went on to say that at the combine a lot of NFL guys were talking about safeties not having any ball skills because of the way that offenses have evolved and isolate them now.
